PORTLAND -- The Portland Trail Blazers held a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings before Wednesday night's game.

Several teams across the country have done tributes at sporting events over the past couple of days.

Commander Mike Crebs with TriMet said more officers were patroling MAX trains and stops for Wednesday night's game.

Rose Garden officials declined to talk about their security plan but released the following statement: “The security of Trail Blazers fans, players, staff and employees will continue to be a top-priority.”

Wednesday night’s game was the final home game of the season for the Blazers. It was also fan appreciation night.
